OUR ONLINE CHECKOUT is CLOSED and we are NOT accepting any NEW orders at this time.

We are still fulfilling and shipping previously submitted and/or delayed order requests (as product availability allows) UNTIL NOVEMBER 15th 2022.

But after November 15th, all still pending backordered unshipped items will be automatically CANCELLED **(except for any special ordered drop-shipped or made/machined-to-order items).

Our ability to respond to emails is greatly hampered by being under-staffed during this downsize transition time. But we continue to endeavor to answer email inquiries as best we can. And we will continue responding to emails through until early March 2023 because we are wholly committed to resolving any other issues that may arise from previous sales. It is still UNCERTAIN, but we may re-open a substantially downsized version of our store again in the Spring of 2023.

We sincerely appreciate your patience, understanding during this period of restructuring and/or closing. And a huge thank you to all of you whose support and loyalty we have been the beneficiary of over the 23 years that we have worked diligently to support the information and parts needs of the aircooled VW community!

Lower Cylinder Air Deflector Plate, Upright Engines, 10mm Head Studs, 40hp-1600cc Upright Engines, EACH, 311-119-317A
Lower Cylinder Air Deflector Plate, Upright Engines, 10mm Head Studs, 40hp-1600cc Upright Engines, Each, 311-119-317A


 
Lower Cylinder Air Deflector Plate, Upright Engines, 10mm Head Studs, 40hp-1600cc Upright Engines, Each, 311-119-317A is the most critical pieces of engine tin on the whole engine! These deflect air to the lower parts of the cylinders, to properly cool them. If these are omitted from the engine, the cooling air simply rushes down between the cylinders, and the bottoms of the cylinders run much hotter than the tops. This creates such uneven temperatures that the cylinders can distort, and the rings then no longer seal the cylinder because it is no longer round, it's Egg Shaped!

These must be installed BEFORE the heads and push rod tubes are installed, unless you are using Spring Loaded Push Rod Tubes. We prefer these square shaped tins over the "Super Cool Tins" that many people use. These also MUST be used in conjunction with "Sled Tins" to keep air rushing beneath the engine from "backing up" the cooling air's escape, out and back! You need TWO of these do to one engine. These snap onto the lower inner head studs, and "block" the air that flows between the cylinders, fore/aft to cool the lower side of the cylinder. These are often missing, and this results in a significant temperature difference from cylinder upper and lower, and lessens cylinder lifespan because they distort and warp (non round).
